This is the all new G5655T-CB Semi-hollow body guitar from Gretsch! This a radical redesign of the “double jet” concept. While the guitar has the body shape of the standard Electromatic Double Jet, the construction is entirely different. It features a true semi-hollow body design with 5 ply maple top, back & sides. The result of this design is a very well balanced, light weight and lively sounding guitar. The G5655T-CB keeps with the tradition of the Electromatic series offering a great playing and sharp looking guitar with killer tone and an affordable price. These are simply phenomenal guitars with classic Gretsch vibes and tone but the addition of a “center-block” of spruce increases sustain and feedback rejection. The quality, fit & finish are outstanding with great fretwork and professional level setup. The “Black-Top” Filter’Tron bridge pickup is punchy and bright and handles gain and overdrive really well. The new Dual-Coil SUPER HiLo'Tron offers the warm woody tones of the classic “Hilo” single coil but with increased output and noiseless operation.*Though not included from the factory we have hard cases for this model in stock and ready to ship along with your order. Please contact us for details regarding the cases we suggest for this instrument.Details (from The G5655T-CB Electromatic® Center-Block Electric Guitar features That Great Gretsch Sound™ with the "center-block advantage." The interior solid spruce center block running the length of the guitar’s 1 ¾"-deep Double Jet™ body makes for a lively "high gain-friendly" tone and delivers greater control over the kind of feedback players want. The new dual-coil Super HiLo’Tron™ neck pickup is voiced to produce a clean, high-end sparkle with robust low-end, low-noise performance. Together with the "Black Top" Filter’Tron™ bridge pickup, it’s a potent tonal combination.Other premium features include five-ply maple body construction with a bound arched top and back, a bound maple neck and a 12.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and Neo-Classic™ "thumbnail" inlays. The G5655T-CB also has three-way pickup switching, single-ply black pickguard with Gretsch logo, four "G-arrow" control knobs (volume for each pickup, bridge-pickup-only tone, master volume), anchored Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and flat-handle Bigsby®-licensed B50 vibrato, Grover® tuners and knurled strap retainer knobs. Available in Black, Rosa Red and Georgia Green gloss finishes.Features:General
